In the midst of a pandemic and as the streets remain empty, the frozen lakes and rivers of Minnesota have become my playground. Ice skaters, ice swimmers, ice sailers, ice dancers, ice fishermen, etc… All the fun is happening on the ice and it has been the best escape from reality ever! (Project shot with the Fujifilm X100V at 23mm in Acros.)
